“Going above and beyond what is usual, regular, or customary is just one way to describe these exemplary women who have followed their dreams to fruition. Although these accomplished females have different backgrounds, expertise, leadership and communication styles, they do have at least one thing in common that has supported them in their quest for professional success.

Testimonial

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY ABOUT US

  • "“I had not seen Dr Sheikh for almost four years She had taken excellent care of my husband who died a few months ago. He often remembered her but was too weak to make it to her office. I was feeling very depressed and remembered how well she had taken care of my husband and i wanted to see her as none of the doctors were helping me. I could not remember her full name, and i suddenly found her card which fell out of my husbands book. I made an appointment immediately I was so pleased to see her now more beautiful, younger and smarter."
  • "Her office is the best I have ever seen and she decorated it all by herself, She greetedme with her soft sincere smile and after about 30 mins i was feeling almost a 100 percent better. I had to give her a hug and I did. Inspite of all that she has been through her healing power has gotten even better. She listens, she connects and she heals, as you walk into her office the healing starts as her warmth is all over in the paintings, the wall colour and her flowers. I am so glad I found her. No other doctor has had that impact on me and i am almost 72 yrs. God Bless her and I hope her healing power will bring the same comfort it gave me. I recommend her undoubtedly. You must see her office, Its a piece of art and she told me that she is an artist herself!”"
  • "“She is one of the best doctors. Everytime i have been in her office, everyone in the waiting room has told me that she is worth the wait, and they are absolutely right. She is the only doctor who listens. I have had more relief with my pain than any doctor i have ever been to. She recently moved her office and was busy settling down, during that time she was very busy. Dont go by one bad experience. We all have those, but what is more important is how many patients she helps. Her waiting room would not discuss about her positively if she was not good, If you did not like her it is indeed your loss I recommend her highly to everyone”"
